    Trump To China: Please Don't Throw Me In That Briar Patch

    Trump To China: Please Don't Throw Me In That Briar Patch

    Please don't throw me in dat briar patch!

    Brer Rabbit, Song of the South

    China just doesn't get it. It's actually humorous to watch. Beijing has become so addicted to its own deceitful, mercantile trade policies that it really doesn't understand what it is facing in the United States due to President Trump's (and the American people's) disgust with China's malignant behavior.

    China doesn't understand what 'Make America Great Again' really means, nor does it understand the political situation inside this country.

    A stunning example of this phenomenon was China's threat over the weekend for Chinese students to 'raise the risk awareness' of studying inside the United States. In other words, don't study in the U.S. and stop your money from going to American universities. Does Beijing really think this is a game changer?

    Numerous American national security analysts have warned of the threat from over three hundred thousand Chinese at American schools working in hi-tech labs and sending everything they learn back to Beijing's spy agencies.

    In addition, the Marxist faculty inside our re-education centers for American youth hardly are Trump supporters. So, starving them of capital is not a threat at all but another example of #MAGA. It may even hasten the #MAGA process.

    Beijing is outclassed when it comes to negotiations by the blue collar billionaire from Brooklyn who completely understands that America holds ALL the cards in this fight.

    There is an old saying that if you owe the bank a million dollars, then you have a problem. But if you owe the bank one hundred million dollars, then the bank has a problem. We buy a half trillion dollars more a year worth of goods from China than they buy from us. All Trump has to do is turn off the switch and their economy collapses.

    Trump knows this. Beijing knows this but doesn't want to admit it. Therefore China will continue to make clown show threats.

    Get the popcorn, this is going to be good.

    Can't wait until OUR new rare earth processing plant in Texas is on-line... China forgets, before Slick Willie Clinton allowed them to join the WTO in oneway deals, they did not supply ANY rare earth metals to the world...

    Oh, it's already good!!


    WAY past time for the CCP leadership to end in a flash of bright light. We will loose a few decrepit and useless cities and some excess and generally useless urban population but the US and the world will be better off in the long run. NOW comes the wailing and crying from the Demo-coward leftist. I call BS, I live in the fireball zone of a major US naval base. Unleash the BOOMERS and the BOMBERS. Get it done. We all have gotta die of something and I want my grandchildren to live free.
